Student research paper


This project aims to fill a notable deficiency in fundamental automobile maintenance knowledge within the local community, a deficiency that has resulted in increased repair expenses and potential hazards to safety. The proposed approach entails the creation and execution of an interactive workshop that specifically targets fundamental car maintenance activities such as oil changes, tire rotations, and brake inspections. This workshop utilizes a service-learning approach, actively involving the community and partnering with local auto repair shops and other relevant parties. The program seeks to equip community members with essential skills in basic car maintenance through interactive learning and practical demonstrations. This initiative intends to foster safer driving habits and enable individuals to make financial savings. The workshop's efficacy will be assessed by a comprehensive methodology, encompassing pre- and post-workshop assessments, comments from attendees, and indicators measuring community involvement.
